What came in the Post Today?

Question

This is an idea I've stolen from another forum I used to use...

Rules are-

-If you've received something interesting for your Celica (be it big, or small) you post up an image. If it's obvious enough then there's no need for a description, or you could get people guessing...even just from the packaging if you so wish.

-Post up what you paid for it. This could be a bargain or RRP if you bought new or from auction, it helps indicate to other users the sort of price of things they may also wish to buy...

-Post up where you bought it from

To summarise- Pic, Price, Where?

I'll get the ball rolling (this just got delivered)...

Jesus...FedEx are quick! Knock at the door at 8am

Took delivery of Sokie Tech bonnet dampers.

Then received the text a minute after closing the door saying they were out for delivery...so witchcraft is involved.

Do they not know I've got a Black/Red theme going down

So, these will now be sprayed red to match.

Also got my correct CV joint (this time from Eurocarparts) through yesterday after a right mare with MicksGarage - will never use them again put it this way...shocking customer service.

They'll look smart red mate! I also had a nightmare with micksgarage! Ordered a new rad for my st, turned up late after I rang to ask where it was!? They'd some how missed the order?? Then the rad turned up and it was for a gt!

Aw Matt...that's just the half of it mate.

Basically I got sent 2 cv joints in March, only got around to sorting recently and realised they were wrong (up for sale on here if anyone interested )

Contacted, sorry over 30 days can't accept them.

No exchange policy either even though they sent wrong part.

Ok...they couldn't tell me when correct part was in and to check back.

Checked back, available again. Ordered.

2.0l cv joint arrives...again.

Then they start asking me for the OEM part no. so they can cross ref....now, isn't that what they are supposed to do before selling items on their site???

I was also told that the Reg input is and I quote

"It must not be the correct one for your vehicle. The reg checker on our system is simply to get the general make and model of your vehicle but not your specific vehicle."

Of course it's specific, I build sites for a living and this 100% the reason they are on there...baffled by some people, seriously.

Cost me £13 to send back, they won't answer any, not a single one of my questions on the emails...really pissed me off.

Said I wanted the postage refunded...I just got an email saying thank you for contacting us...that was it

Gonna wait for the refund and slate online. Absolute jokers.

Idiots mate! People like that do my head in, they are the ones who should check They're sending the correct parts out.

I saw you ended up getting them from eurocarparts. At least they gave you the right ones.

Today's been a bit like Christmas...I should have waited on the post.

Best packaging award goes to the first parcel.

Were advertised as hypersports (just rears) but look too new to me...maybe similar to the ones Tom got for his GT4, happy with em though...no labels/markings, do the rears have any?

Got some long hub studs from Fensport to cope with my brake upgrade, spacers and Momo Arrows. They kindly cut them and ground them to the size I wanted too, FOC.

More pics in my thread, really happy with the work, and the colour, which is the same as my rims, a metallic gunmetal grey

Is that it for engine bay then or have you got any more plans?

I'm waiting on a load of sheet metal and a few other bits, I've got a plan for the engine bay. Hopefully I'll have everything for the weekend.
